Smart Ship Technology
A smart ship is a type of marine vessel that relies heavily on advanced technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence and automation to manage operations. The smart ship concept is gaining traction today due to its potential for improved efficiency (development of autonomous ships) and safety in the maritime industry.
The purpose of smart ship technologies is to improve crew performance and reduce risks associated with traditional methods achieved by the use of sensors installed throughout the ship. These sensors enable data-driven decision making that optimizes processes from navigation to energy management. Operators can access real-time information about their vessels and make informed decisions quickly and accurately. By automating specific manual tasks, the crew will be able to focus more on what matters most: safely operating their vessel.
